Indian Beard Artist Sameer Mehta set Limca Book World Records 2010


                                          Indian Beard Artist Sameer Mehta world records 2010

An Indian businessman has made the record books - after sporting 57 different beard designs in four years.

 Sameer Mehta, 37, of Gujarati, visits a barber every other day for around two hours to perfect his intricate designs.

But he says it can take around a month, and up to £60, to complete each new design.

"I use my beard to convey things without actually saying them," Mr Mehta told the Times of India.

His designs have included an IPL tribute in the shape of cricket bats and balls, a tricolour flag for Independence Day, a heart for Valentine's Day and a voting symbol during last year's elections.

The idea first came to him four years ago when he was lying on a hospital bed after having his appendix removed.

He thought that men, compared to women, had very few fashion choices and decided to use his facial hair to make a statement.

When Mr Mehta sported his very first design - which he called a six half eggs beard - passers-by would snigger and his own wife refused to be seen with him.

However, he ignored the criticism and now people stop him in the street to take his photograph - and even his wife's frosty feelings have thawed.

And, after entering the Limca Book of Records, India's version of the Guinness Book of Records, he is vowing to carry on and clock up 100 designs.

Guinness World Record launched iPad apps books




One of the promises of the iPad was the ability to bring a new kind of book to life, an interactive book popping with video, animation and web links.

A worthy example of this looks like the upcoming Guinness World Records app for the iPad, which will be available tomorrow. The Guinness World Records are usually bound up in a best-selling book each year but this iPad version won't be headed to the iBookStore. It'll be available in the App Store because it's much more than static words and images on a page.

Check out the video example above. You can see that record breaking entries will swoosh into place and will include interactive graphics, charts and videos.


The Usain Bolt entry for the world's fastest man includes video of his record-breaking run.

The iPad app available at launch is a free lite version with more than 150 photographs, 140 records and 25 video clips. A paid version will be available this September.

This is cool stuff that will change our view of what a book is. It's great that we're gonna have e-books on the iPad but it shouldn't stop there.
